All CGU alumni who graduated in or after 2016 retain access to their email addresses after graduation, making it easy to stay connected with faculty, staff, and fellow alumni and enhance your networking opportunities. While we are unfortunately unable to offer the full Microsoft Office license for all alumni, you can still access your CGU email on Outlook on the Web.

If you graduated prior to 2016, the Claremont Graduate University Office of Alumni Relations is pleased to offer alumni an e-mail account powered by Google.  This service is FREE to CGU alumni.  Your CGU Alumni Google e-mail account will also include a suite of applications:

  • Google Mail- conversation views, easy searching and archiving of e-mail. You will never need to delete an e-mail again.
  • Google Calendar- schedule your professional and social life, create and share calendars, and invite others to meetings and events.
  • Google Docs- great for keeping track of your files — available anytime, anywhere. Create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
  • Access to Google Sites and Google Talk.
  • Google Groups- connect with other alumni with similar interests.
  • Over 7GB of allocated space to store your data.

This service is an actual email account, not email forwarding. (However, the CGU Alumni Google account does allow for you to forward your email to a third-party e-mail address – if you choose.)
